I hope everyone had a fun and safe Halloween weekend. We passed out candy to the neighborhood kids and watched the Utah football game. It was nice and relaxing. I also made Pumpkin Cinnamon Muffins for our neighbors that helped Josh with the basement.

I used the leftover pumpkin in the refrigerator from my pumpkin oatmeal cookies. I decided to add lots of cinnamon and cinnamon chips. I loved making these muffins because they were so easy and I only had to use one bowl. After cleaning up the basement mess, I was not in the mood to do a bunch of dishes:)

The muffins puffed up in the oven and made the house smell like fall. I didn’t get to taste them because we gave them away, but they sure did look and smell good! I hope they were edible. Make a batch and let me know:)

Pumpkin Cinnamon Muffins

1 ½ cup flour
½ teaspoons salt
½ cups sugar
½ cups brown sugar
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 cup pumpkin
½ cups canola oil
2 eggs
¼ cup buttermilk
1 teaspoon cinnamon
½ teaspoons nutmeg
¼ teaspoons all spice
1 cup cinnamon chips


Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Grease a muffin pan with cooking spray or line with paper liners.

In a large bowl, whisk together the pumpkin, oil, eggs, and buttermilk. Add in the sugars and stir
until combined. Sprinkle the spices on top and stir.

Add the flour and baking soda to the mixture. Stir until combined. Add in the cinnamon chips. Pour the batter into the prepared muffin pan.

Bake for 20-24 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Cool the muffins on a wire rack.

  1. Great blog!

    I was so excited to try these, but unfortunately they lack flavor…they need more sugar or perhaps some vanilla…they are very moist and look so pretty, but are a bit shy in the yummy department.

  2. I finally ran across some cinnamon chips at my local grocery store today! Would have never been looking for them had it not been for your blog so now I am backtracking and printing out your recipes that call for them! These muffins are going to be first on the list!
